I am a third year first grade teacher. In our school we are asked not to tell parents what reading group their kids are in, though parents inevitably ask and it's so frustrating to try and dance around the subject. I usually break and tell them. Is this common in all schools? If so, how do you get around it? I understand not wanting to perpetuate "oh, my son's in the high group!" and how that can come off as competitive within the group of classroom parents... but I believe most parents who ask are genuinely concerned and if their kids are in the lower reading group they want to be able to find tools to help their kids. thoughts... suggestions? thank you.
